Not long ago, I posted a blog including passive aggressive tips for shy Avon representatives. In the list, I suggested getting a tote. I felt it was only right to show some of the promotional items and list a few ideas so that representatives looking to grow their business could have an idea of simple and easy ways to promote themselves.
True story: while waiting on Chicago’s train system, aka “el”, I noticed a lady staring at me. She never said a word but looked at my tote. I continued to watch her. She then pulled out her phone and began typing and looking at my bag. That day I ended up with an online order! I guess some people just prefer to shop online 🙂

Just recently, I spoke to my District Sales Manager and she mentioned that a lot of representatives are struggling with building their online business. They’ve posted many times on multiple social media accounts and have no results. After speaking with her, I learned that many representatives are simply “sharing” others’ posts. Thus, redirecting traffic back to the original poster when they should be creating their own content. Even if the author allows you to share, find a way to save it then post it so your name is attached. Anything else is you’re just giving the author free publicity. Always give credit where it’s due but remember, when it comes to selling Avon, you want people to think of you. Now this isn’t to say that changing one simple thing will skyrocket your business overnight, but it is a step in the right direction. With online business, it takes some time to build brand recognition and build trust with consumers. CONSISTENCY IS KEY!
